Musical requirements:
16 bars. You may bring back up music on a device or CD. Your range will be checked by the musical director.

Please dress appropriately for movement!

Gomez Addams: Actor to play 50s. A man in his prime, of Spanish descent and a wild Iberian passion. Adores his family. He’s very much about what it means to be an Addams. His desire for Morticia is undimmed after 20 years of marriage. Must have great comedic timing, strong tenor voice and the moves for the tango!
 
Morticia Addams: Actor to play 40 - 50s. Holds the balance of power in the family; often seems like the only emotionally mature member of the clan. Beautiful and aristocratic, the real head of the family , always sees the best in people. Must be a great dancer who is funny and sings well, alto/mezzo soprano.
 
Uncle Fester: Actor to play 40s – 50s. The narrator of the piece, Fester is child-like, hugely enthusiastic and totally incorrigible. A vaudevillian, needs strong comedy and tenor voice.
 
Wednesday Addams: Actor to play age 17. Romantic lead, a younger version of Morticia. Needs a great pop/rock style singing voice and a witty, DRY sense of humor.
 
Grandmama: Actor to play 102! We’ll take younger though. Ancient. Good-natured, easily led. Very active for her age. Character singer with strong humor.

Pugsley Addams: Actor to play age 10-12. Plump, adorable and FUNNY....a smaller version of Gomez. His singing voice needs to be big and unchanged.
 
Lurch: Actor, ageless. A man of very, very few words, often spoken at half speed. Most of what he utters is long, plaintive groans, some tinged with irony or exasperation. Lurch sees everything, knows everything that goes on under the roof of The Addams Family manse. Must have a TRUE low bass voice.
 
Colonel Mal Beinecke: Actor to play 45 – 50. Military man, a man who must be obeyed, with little patience for his wife and son. High Bari-tenor voice.
 
Alice Beinecke: Actor to play early 40s. She truly loves her husband and loves that he takes charge; so she makes no decisions. Since he has become more distant, she has refocused her love to her only son, Lucas. Must be very funny and sing well - soprano/belter
 
Lucas Beinecke: Actor to play 19. A writer, he has conflicts with his father's closed-minded ways. Fell in love with Wednesday at first sight. Lucas feels good when everybody's happy. Needs to be a great pop/rock singer.

Addams Family Ancestors:
Male and Female Ensemble singers/dancers from all ages of time who are fun, energetic and quirky. Solo and small group parts available.
